South Korea-Based SK Signet Establishes Plano, Texas, Manufacturing Facility

SK Signet established its EV charger manufacturing facility in Plano, Texas. The project is expected to create 183 jobs by 2026.

This company’s first U.S. facility will be able to produce more than 10,000 ultra-fast chargers per year.

"SK Signet is thrilled to be opening this facility in Texas," said SK Signet CEO Jung Ho Shin. "The opening of the SK Signet factory means new jobs for Texas and more chargers for American EV owners. We couldn't have accomplished this without the close partnership of the State of Texas and the City of Plano."

The new plant will produce a range of ultra-fast chargers from standalone dispensers to power cabinets that support multiple dispensers, for use by U.S.-based public charging operators, along with commercial companies with EV fleets and traditional gas stations or convenience stores that are expanding their offerings.

"We are proud that SK Signet has chosen Plano, Texas, for this significant investment," Governor Greg Abbott notedt. "The company's new state-of-the-art facility will not only create new manufacturing jobs for hardworking Texans, but will advance critical EV infrastructure for our state and the nation. Thanks to innovative leaders like SK Signet, Texas is leading the way on future technology which will power the Texas of tomorrow."

SK Signet is a top global manufacturer of electric vehicle (EV) chargers for both consumer and commercial vehicles, and is a leader in fast and ultra-fast charging, boasting the first UL-certified ultra-fast charger (350 kW) in the U.S.
